Evening News

GREEK returns with iota of racy content
When GREEK hit ABC Family last July, some thought the college-set series was a little too racy for the kid-conscious channel, but star Spencer Grammer (ex-Lucy, AS THE WORLD TURNS) begs to differ. "I think that people have a different perception of what the network actually is. I think that it's trying to redefine itself and become a network that's for the whole family and not just 5-year-olds. I'm not saying 5-year-olds should watch college shows because it is a little racy, but I do think it's something that crosses a large audience."

Cady McClain will haunt ALL MY CHILDREN
They'll be whistling Dixie in Pine Valley again. Cady McClain is coming back to ALL MY CHILDREN. It's not unusual for a soap favorite to return to the show where they once were a prominent player.

Poll: Changes at GUIDING LIGHT
In the three weeks since the production changes at GUIDING LIGHT have gone into effect fans are divided about whether they love the new look or despise the changes. Informally it seems as if the negative comments outweigh the positives. The biggest complaints seem to focus on the sound quality, the shakiness of the cameras and the odd filming angles. Those that love the changes are enjoying the more realistic aspects of the new format.

Michael Damian's film Moondance Alexander
You may remember Michael Damian from his 20 years on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, or you may know him as Theresa Moller's (aka Tracy Barnes, local musician) little brother. Or, you may not know him at all — yet. Having recently returned to the long running TV series after an absence, Damian has also taken his acting career into the realm of filmmaking and directing. And his sisters, Tracy and Maria Weir Werth, and parents, Larry and Maria Weir and other family members couldn't be more supportive or proud. The movie, Moondance Alexander, stars Kay Panabaker, Sasha Cohen and Don Johnson, and already is the recipient of seven awards, including the coveted Dove Award.
